If your skin flushes in certain situations or if you have chronically red skin in areas, you may have rosacea, a skin condition that causes a variety of symptoms.

What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, bumps, and other symptoms on the skin. People with rosacea experience frequent bouts of symptoms that interfere with quality of life, but the condition is not necessarily a medical concern.
What Are the Benefits of Rosacea Treatment?
Rosacea cannot be cured, so treatment aims to help people manage their symptoms. This includes methods for reducing the frequency and severity of rosacea break outs. Once you are able to better manage the symptoms, the physical and emotional effects of rosacea are diminished.
How Do I Know If I Have Rosacea?
Signs that you may have rosacea are:
- Chronically red skin
- Bumps that look like acne
- Tiny, visible blood vessels below the skin (spider veins)
- Thickening of the skin
- Localized swelling
- Dryness and rough texture
- Enlarged pores
- Bulbous nose
- Vision problems
Your symptoms may linger, or you may experience bouts of the symptoms.
What Should I Expect from Rosacea Treatment?
After diagnosing your rosacea, Dr. Hopkins recommends a treatment regimen that begins with the most conservative option. Treatments may include:
- Avene® skin care products
- Vitamin supplements
- Laser treatments
- Fusion Facial
- Photodynamic therapy (blue light)
- Treatment for spider veins
